Metal Gear Solid V: Japan Gets 1:1 Scale Version of Snake’s Arm in $250 “Premium” Box; Pictures Inside

on March 4, 2015 11:18 AM

As usual, we can’t have nice things. The western collector’s edition of Metal Gear Solid V: The Phantom Pain includes a half-size replica of Snake’s artificial arm.

On the other hand, Japanese gamers won’t just get the spiffy Special Edition PS4, but they will also have access to the “Premium Package” edition, which will include a full size 1:1 scale replica of Snake’s arm.

You can check out the box and the arm below. The Premium Package will not be released on Xbox 360.

I guess we can take comfort in the fact that the western collector’s edition only costs US$ 99.99 / €99.99, while the Premium Box costs 29,800 yen plus taxes, which translates into just south of $250.
